Stef loves urban planning

 

That's a real tattoo, she got it done in Australia.

and that's a painting in her house, in Canada.

OK- 1st a Building was developed in the 1970's that offered affordable Apartment Rentals- before Condo's were developed around The City.

See the tRUMP Building ?

that previously was a low-rise-building

that housed The Chicago Sun-Times Newspaper- before tRUMP bought the site- and hired a great (former S.O.M.) Architect (Adrian Smith) to design a SUPER-tall

high-rise, along with the circular ramp to a Parking garage.

 

Then- it a very stupid-move-

a Developer swayed the Condo Association-of-The-Parking Garage of 405 Wabash, to "purchase" the Air Rights-

atop a-below grade Parking Garage,

and built a Multi-Million Dollar Condo Building-

in a small area that totally blocks

the view of many Condo Owners in The 405 N. Wabash Building.

 

And- to think- The City of Chicago- has a Planning Commission- filled with weak-souls that studied "Urban Planning" in School.

Urban planning is a technical and political process concerned with the development and design of land use and the built environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas, such as transportation, communications, and distribution networks Urban planning deals with physical layout of human settlements. The primary concern is the public welfare, which includes considerations of efficiency, sanitation, protection and use of the environment, as well as effects on social and economic activities. Urban planning is considered an interdisciplinary field that includes social, engineering and design sciences.

Urban planning, design and regulation of the uses of space that focus on the physical form, economic functions, and social impacts of the urban environment and on the location of different activities within it. Because urban planning draws upon engineering, architectural, and social and political concerns, it is variously a technical profession, an endeavour involving political will and public participation, and an academic discipline.

Urban planning is considered an interdisciplinary field that includes social, engineering and design sciences. It is closely related to the field of urban design and some urban planners provide designs for streets, parks, buildings and other urban areas. Urban planning is also referred to as urban and regional planning, regional planning, town planning, city planning, rural planning, urban development or some combination in various areas worldwide.

Urban planning is the process of organization that is used to take control of the city lands, and how are they designed, Including transportation, communication networks, and protection. Urban planning focus on the physical form, economic functions, and social impacts of the urban environment. Making a plan can take a variety of forms including strategic plans, comprehensive plans, and neighborhood plans. Strategic planning is an organization's process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to go with this strategy, and its deals with at least one of three key questions: What do we do?, For whom do we do it?, and How do we excel?

the humanistic urban planning - and the perfect city

 

The Venture Pienza

Starting from Pienza, the humanistic urban planning concepts spread to other Italian cities and ultimately to all of Europe.

 

History

 

My friend Wiki said: Before the village was renamed to Pienza its name was Corsignano. It is first mentioned in documents from the 9th century.

 

Around 1300 parts of the village became property of the Piccolomini family. after Enghelberto d'Ugo Piccolomini had been enfeoffed with the fief of Montertari in Val d'Orcia by the emperor Frederick II in 1220.

 

In the 13th century Franciscans settled down in Corsignano.

 

1405 Corsignano was the birthplace of Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini, a Renaissance humanist born into an exiled Sienese family, who later became Pope Pius II.

 

Once he became Pope, Piccolomini had the entire village rebuilt as an ideal Renaissance town and renamed it after himself to Pienza.

 

Intended as a retreat from Rome, it represents the first application of

 

humanist urban planning concepts,

 

creating an impetus for planning that was adopted in other Italian towns and cities and eventually spread to other European centers.

 

The rebuilding was done by Florentine architect Bernardo Gambarelli (known as Bernardo Rossellino) who worked with the humanist and architect

 

Leon Battista Alberti.

 

Alberti was in the employ of the Papal Curia at the time and served as an advisor to Pius.

 

Construction started about 1459. Pope Pius II consecrated the Duomo on August 29, 1462, during his long summer visit. He included a detailed description of the structures in his Commentaries, written during the last two years of his life.

 

It is a Mecca - for an architect and urban planer like me.

 

Spooky - why do look 90% of the people diogonal in one direction on the Piazza Pio II ? ;-) ...

One of the fast growing cities on the West Coast. Seattle downtown is full of constructions wherever you turn. This image illustrates a busy highway with existing development and the upcoming highrise on the bottom of the frame.

這樣看還頗像三角洲...

Actually, it was part of some ill-fated gravel digging thingy. There's a plaque, explaining it all, but if you want to know that bad, you'll have to come to Duluth and walk along the board walk.

The grid is the square of urban planning, it will determine the movement and shape of cities. The similarity between red blood cells and the cars carrying people is a metaphor for understanding why the human body works so well, and the block squared cities have become infarction or huge traffic jams.The ideal city is an orbital corpus and finds its ideal in the Palestinian cities of Abdelrahman in Spain, Charlemagne was his great friend and developed this idea in northern Europe.The Jesuit cities are inspired by Xian or Beijing, they can be found in America, throughout Africa and in many development plans designed to simplify the work of surveyors and decision-makers. The result is normalization of people and formatting.The circle is a meeting point. The magic paving stone of the chessboard has been a failure for a long time but few urban planners accept this fact. The system of a grid city is imposed as a simple way to enlarge or create a city from a lane, at the extreme certain city exists only on a lane composed of boxes with car parks to facilitate access.Thus, many neighborhoods resemble chess boards with commercial zones on the old market gardening areas, agricultural production being managed at regional or national level.

The city and the importance of its geometry, the journeys of urban dwellers in a quadrangular city and the absence or failure of shops in these neighbourhoods should be better studied.

I would think not ... this little park used to filled with lovely trees and shrubs ... they ripped them all up, stuck these gawdy lamps in ...and the ' Artist' calls it ..... The Forest .... insanity 101 ...needless to say the tax paying residents were a tad miffed ...ugh !!!

The first step's a doozy.

Flamengo Park was an urban planning project on the coast of Rio under the direction of Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994) in the 1950s and 1960s. The Modernist concrete museum building, designed by Alfonso Eduardo Reidy (1909-1964), was completed in 1955. The museum's landmark Modernist gardens were designed by Burle Marx.

 

The main building has a dramatic cadence of external pillar elements, connected by longitudinal beams, providing a galley level free of internal columns or structural walls. The park was created on landfill in the bay, so the pillars footings reach 20 metres (66 ft) down.

 

Alfonso Reidy's essay for the meaning of the museum expressed:

 

"The cultural influence of a modern art museum is not only drawn from the collection of works of art and of courses of study and conferences held there, but more particularly the creation of their own intellectual atmosphere in which the artist is to enrich their own work and ideas in which the public can absorb the artistic culture required by the mind of modern man. "

According to the late chef Anthony Bourdain, São Paulo “feels like Los Angeles threw up on New York", and although many of my fellow locals took that as an offence, I think Bourdain just nailed it on his definition of my hometown.

 

With a population of 12.1 million people living in an area of 1,521.11 km2 (587.3039 sq mi) just in the city of Sao Paulo, excluding the metropolitan area, isn't so hard to see how much we failed in urban planning.

 

On the middle of the picture is the Pico do Jaraguá, the highest mountain in the city at 1,135 m (3,724 ft) above sea level, and with the TV and Radio antennae on top of it, I guess Bourdain would probably relate this northern part of the town more with LA than with NYC...

I decided to call this "Some urban planning required" although it has strictly nothing to do with urban planning. Je voulais rendre hommage aux artistes de la rue.
